Red Sox pitcher Felix Doubront missed the cutoff for salary arbitration eligibility by two days.

Felix Doubront received his first taste of World Series pressure in May.
The promising left-hander had just been skipped in the starting rotation after a dreadful six weeks that were exacerbated by his failure to arrive to spring training in anything resembling peak physical condition.
The only thing doughier than his body was his ERA: 6.40 on May 16 before a road start against...
If at the conclusion of the regular season you had Felix Doubront pegged as the winning pitcher in Game 4 of the World Series, you either checked out around Sept. 1, took a leap of faith for the sole purpose of being a jokester or were under the influence of heavy narcotics — perhaps all of the above.
No one could have foreseen Doubront’s World Series contributions. This isn’t...
With the uncertainty of Clay Buchholz' health, the Sox may have to turn to Felix Doubront to take the mound for game 4. It has been a while since Felx has been handed the ball to start the game, since September 22, to be exact. Will the rest benefit Felix? He thinks so.

Felix Doubront isn’t sure if the bullpen is for him.
Doubront, who has been skipped in the starting rotation with Clay Buchholz back in the mix, figured to be a candidate to join the Red Sox’ bullpen. The left-hander is skeptical about such a move, though.
“If they said, ‘Go to the bullpen and warm up right now,’ I can’t do that,” Doubront told WEEI.com before Wednesday’s...
It's not every day that a Major League Baseball club signs a teenager, but when the Boston Red Sox inked Felix Doubront when he was just 16 years old they must have saw something special in him. As a byproduct of ex-Red Sox GM Theo Epstein's prevalence in the international free agent market, Doubront was signed out of Carabobo, Venezuela. A country that has become a baseball...
